Fast Forward

“New days provide a reason to stand up, breath, get things done, and move forward from what held us back yesterday.”
~Angela K. Crandall~


Inspiration found in the rain

Born in the stars

A drink of champagne

Mere seconds of hope ignited

Glistening ice

Slips on my tongue

Then falls into the glass

I set on the table

The taxicab took me away to an old hotel in the middle of a city. One I’d never heard about. It’s almost morning, I was ready to slip into cool, soft sheets. I hoped they could provide them. I’d been traveling for ages. Crawling out of the cab, I paid my fare. Then looked up at the large building. Afterward, I took a deep breath, sighed then sauntered into this new domain.~AKC~©4/24/17


I am, imagined by someone.
Needed and unseen.
Left in the forest hidden.
A miracle, undetected.
~Angela K. Crandall~


My heart is spilling out poetry profoundly
Over analyzing
Every evening
Tempting fate
For a solution to debates
Problems, troubles, conflicts
Pleading that others see beyond their own biblical perceptions
The more I see
I want to be
Agnostic again.

Rise Rise Above

“Live in the aspects of beauty

From each ray of light

Possess your soul with  luminosity

That casts its silhouette anew.”

Fed up

This life is not for me

All I do is give and give

Nothing exists inside

Everything gets voided

I’m always forced to look beyond

It leaves me incomplete

Never have I found

It has elapsed everything I had

It disappeared when everyone became the opposite of me

I choose to be free

When I reach out they are never like me

It’s supposed to be Okay.

I’m not allowed friends who feel the same

Instead, I get crapped on.

Thanks, world.

Thank you so much

For always telling me

I have to turn the other cheek.

All it does is piss me off

Reminding me, I’ll never be enough.
